Here’s some real musical (and maddening) mad-libs for you: The Denver radio DJ David Mueller, who sued Taylor Swift after she alleged that he groped her ass at a meet-and-greet in 2013 and lost, has found employment at a Mississippi radio station that apparently does not give a fuck about her, or women, or justice. Whatever.
In December, Swift and Mueller reached a $1 settlement (Mueller was fired from his Denver radio gig months prior.) The DJ sent Swift her $1.00 in the form of a gold Sacagawea coin, because he’s petty as hell, apparently. He’s now making headlines again as the co-host of the morning show “Jackson & Jonbob” at the Greenwood, Mississippi station KIX 92.7, where he operates under the on-air name Stonewall Jackson—like the goddamn Confederate general.
His new employer, Delta Radio CEO Larry Fuss, is psyched on his new, shitty hire, telling the Daily News he thinks Taylor Swift is a liar, essentially:
“I sat down with him face-to-face in Minneapolis before I offered him the job and talked to him about it. He’s either the world’s best liar, or he’s telling the truth. I tend to believe his version of the story and most people who have talked to him face-to-face do believe his version of the story.”
And some choice words for those vocal about their disappointment with his employment:
“Most of them need to get a life. Most of the response I have seen this morning— there’s been quite a few on our Facebook page, and none of it is radio people, none of it is local people in Mississippi. It’s all originating from some Taylor Swift fan group somewhere. They’re telling people to go to this station’s webpage and post negative comments. It’s just people who don’t have a clue, or don’t really have any knowledge of the facts.”
Looks like if you’re a mediocre man in music media, even Taylor Swift can’t stop you from finding a good job somewhere. Great!
